We’re the parents, sisters, brothers, teachers, tutors and mentors to the children of our community. Our children learn from each other, and they learn from us. Our children are the future and considering intelligent alternative educational formats may be one of the necessary pathways to our children thriving in this crazy beautiful world.
Beyond excited to share episodes 18 & 19 of The We Know Show – Part 1 – You Were Called To Be Here, And It’s Showtime & Part 2 – Luminous Education – Changing The Culture Of Education with Dr. Edith Ubuntu Chan.
Dr. Edith is a teacher of consciousness and human potential, a Holistic Chinese Medicine Doctor, writer/author, speaker, coach, transformational retreat creator, and mother. This is one of the most moving and emotional interviews ever done on the show, and it brings to light many issues parents face. Throughout the conversation, Dr. Edith radiates extraordinary love and displays kindness.
In Part 1 of my interview with Dr. Edith, we unpack why we exist for these transformational times and why Dr. Edith believes the darkness is coming to light and yes….. it’s Showtime. We are participating in the collapse of old systems and building the new, and while it is intense, it is also beautiful.
We hear about Dr. Edith’s moment of wholeness during a qigong practice and the way this catalysed her to recalibrate her life, and address escapism. She expands on her time in a dark room meditation retreat which fostered the deep connection she cultivated with her intuition. We discuss knowing that it is our dharma that inspires the discomfort of life’s inversions and brings it back into harmony with natural law and why our children are key to that evolution as they sense the energy consciousness and intention behind what we say and do, especially what we do next.

In Part 2 of my interview with Dr. Edith we start with questioning “Who am I, Why Am I Here?” which leads Dr. Edith to the new paradigm of Luminous Education, a huge leap of faith to break free from programming to follow orders and truly uncover what it takes for our kids to learn the skills to do life.
Dr. Edith asks us who would we be if we weren’t so afraid of mistakes. She expands on the ways the status-quo educational system is conditioning our children into helplessness through manipulation of rewards and punishment, shame and approval, a form of domestication to please. The good news: the industrial education model is crumbling, and we are entering a new paradigm in the culture of education.
This interview is one of the most important interviews of our time, reminding us to create a world worthy for our children.
